This Crown of Life

It is here that we help,
sometimes in piddling ways,
often trifling and external;
we help by being beside.
In fellowship, we work.
In families, in singles,
we hold each other in well-being.
The whole gamut of care,
we encourage,
we help,
we hug and hold, and we listen.
We lift these ones up,
and up.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
